10 things to do at the Malvern Caravan Show this weekend
While we love show season, we’re always a bit sad when it starts drawing to a close. That’s why the last of the Warners Shows this year is going to be bigger and better than ever.
Caravan magazine and Warners Exhibitions will be joining forces with the Three Counties Showground (WR13 6NW) this weekend for three days of the incredible Malvern Caravan Show on 2-4th October.
You’ll find countless deals on products and accessories, not to mention great advice and a social schedule of epic proportions across the whole weekend. Check out the exhibitors list to plan who you need to see, then take a look below and see everything else that’s on offer!
With a whole load more news on shows, events and fun throughout the year, make sure you don't miss a single thing by subscribing to Caravan magazine – CLICK HERE.
1 – See the 2016 caravans for sale
Can’t wait until the NEC show? Here’s one of the first chances to see the new caravan launches for next year, this weekend!
Dealers will also be on hand to answer any questions you have about each model, or explain what's different compared to last year and how you can get your new home from home as soon as possible.
2 – Take part in the Tray Bake Competition
Do you think you’re the Mary Berry or Paul Hollywood of the caravan cake world? On Saturday 3 October at 11am, The Malvern Caravan Show will see a great British bake-off of its very own, as showgoers compete for the best tray bake.
All entries must be in the information office by 10.30am. Bribery of the Caravan magazine team welcome (but it won’t make any difference in the competition).
3 – Rocket Man or Tiny Dancer? Bite Your Lip (Get Up and Dance!)
Are you ready for love? You’d better be come Saturday 3 October, as Paul Bacon takes to the stage as Elton John.
Ultimate Elton will be the evening’s entertainment; you’ll have to do a double take to see whether it’s the real thing you’re watching or not!
The show is also open to the public, not just show attendees. It’ll take place in the Severn Hall and tickets cost £5.
4 – Do it doggy style at the Malvern Caravan Show
Proud of your pooch? Get your dog all dolled up and head over to take part in Malvern’s fun dog show. Whatever breed or age of dog, all are welcome to take each other on and be judged in six classes, including:
• Never done it before (for dogs that have never won anything before)
• Dog with most appealing expression
• Waggiest tail
• Golden oldie (dogs seven years and older)
• Caravan catwalk (pretty bitch/handsome dog)
• The best six legs
The competition will take place on Sunday 4 October, with entries being taken from 10.30am in the information office. Judging will start at 11am.
An entry fee of £1 per class will apply.
5 – Garden games and crazy golf
Who doesn’t love the frustration of your crazy golf ball hitting the wrong angle and spiralling out of control away from the hole? It’s genuinely one of the most acceptable forms of infuriation that’s know to man, because it’s still fun!
Take to the course, or any of the other garden games on offer, with your friends or family, or by yourself for a bit of fun while your other half goes and has a nose around stalls and stands.
6 – I Do, I Do, I Do, I Do, I Do want to see an awesome ABBA tribute act
We’re Head Over Heels for the Swedish foursome, so if you’re a Dancing Queen as well, check out ABBA Revival on Saturday night.
The Name of the Game is a night of great tunes from yesteryear; all you need to do is Take a Chance and book your ticket. By the end of it, of course you’ll be saying Thank You for the Music. What’s not to love?
The night’s entertainment, with Ultimate Elton also included, will be £5. So, When All Is Said and Done, it won’t cost you too much Money Money Money.
7 – Vintage vehicles
It's not just the music that will be transporting you back in time, there will be a collection of vintage caravans and owners on hand to offer a nostalgic trip down memory lane. While new caravans are incredible in their own way, they're not made like they used to be and it's always fun to look back to the years when caravanning didn't involve tech wizardry or, in some cases, complete comfort!
8 – Rock and roll through the ages
Get ready for a night of classics ranging from blues and Bob Dylan to more contemporary sounds of Adel. With a repertoire spanning the ’60s, ’70s, ’80s, ’90s and beyond, The Bones will certainly have something to please all tastes.
The best thing about this terrific time of top tunes? It’s free!
9 – Make the most of the surrounding area
While there’s a whole host of activities and entertainment to see and do at the show itself, the Three Counties Showground is perfectly located for exploring the breathtaking Malvern Hills, too.
10 – Tell Caravan magazine all about your weekend
Take a few pictures of yourself and your loved ones relaxing on your pitch or enjoying the weekend’s entertainment, send them to Caravan magazine ([email protected]) with a note about how great your weekend was, and we’ll get you in the magazine or on our Facebook and Twitter pages!
